Understanding Symptoms & Complications
During the early stages of your pregnancy you may well feel sick and although it’s termed ‘morning sickness’ it can occur at any time of the day. Breast tenderness, tiredness and mood swings are also common during your first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Every woman is different and not all women will notice all these symptoms but they are very common.
If you have any other concerns during the early stages of your pregnancy then it’s always advised for you to see your GP, midwife or visit your Urgent Care centre. These could include:
- Light vaginal bleeding
- A high temperature above 37.5 °C
- Pain or burning when passing urine
- Repeated vomiting or diarrhoea with difficulty in keeping fluids down
- Non-pregnancy concerns or flare ups with pre-existing conditions
If you experience moderate or heavy red vaginal bleeding or moderate/severe abdominal pain please visit your Early Pregnancy Assessment Centre or A&E for advice as soon as possible.
